on the full court press. we are talking about an amazing vote yesterday in the united states senate, defied all of the nay sayers santa republicanssayers, santa republicans joining almost all of the democrats to open debate on the gun safety issue, which has been a prior to for president obama. only two democrats refused to go along. we will get to your call peter on the sorry media. >> on twitter @bpshow. jim wants to know if it's possible the gop senators want to get democrats' vote on the record as the anti-gun or anti-second amendment. >> that premise, that total question is based upon the wrong prem premises. they are not anti-gun. they are not anti-second amendment. just requiring a criminal being check so a criminal can't buy a gun is not anti-gun. get that through your damn thick head. anything else? >> keep tweet he is @bp show. >> let's jump to the phones here donald. this can't be right. baton rouge illinois. >> from baton rouge, louisiana. >> of course. >> that's where it is. it says illinois on my sheet here i'm sorry, donald. i knew that had to b
who is using the united states senate and those who didn't vote. you're right. lots of well-meaning people yesterday voted their conscience and voted the right way. but the nra uses the senate and they threaten individuals. and people succumb to those threats. the good people of sandy hook didn't do any threatening of people. they pleaded for the help for themselves and in memory of their children and they pleaded for help for the rest of the country. it is the nra who threatened people with a primary or with their election results. they are the people who are abusing the process and unfortunately, there were those who listened to them yesterday and said no, no! you are not going to use me. i am going to do the right thing by people in the united states of america. and i'm going to do the right thing by our children in protecting their lives. that's the job i was sent here to do. that's what the people of my community are asking me to do. that's what i believe in my heart and in my conscience is the right direction. >> john: connecticut democratic representative rosa delauro
with ricin in 2004. something addressed to the united states senator, it came from a guy in mississippi who is apparently a frequent letter writer. they could tell from the tone of the letter. dropped the letter in memphis, tennessee but from the nature of the writing, they were able to figure out who they believe is behind it. you better believe that federal authorities are going to have questions for that person. >> greta: it's amazing when people do things like this, they put their names -- a series of letters they have be been writing and point the finger at themselves. >> absolutely. there is concern for the united states postal service, there were a number of employees before it got to the senate facility outside of washington, d.c. if you were driving a united states mail truck and had this parcel in the back of your truck obviously you would have concerns. good news you are alive but you had some deadly stuff in the truck. >> greta: any idea where he got the ricin. >> we have not heard anything about that. that is something authorities may know. they may be withholding because they
there will be 60 votes to have a big debate on gun control on the floor of the united states senate. we'll bring you up to date right here on current tv. this show is about analyzing criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i am given to doing anyway. staying in tough with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do care about them, right? vo: the war room tonight at 6 eastern (vo) current tv is the place for compelling true stories. (kaj) jack, how old are you? >> nine. (adam) this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like. (vo) with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. way inside. (christoff) we're patrolling the area looking for guns, drugs bodies ... (adam) we're going to places where few others are going. [lady] you have to get
federal investigators are briefing the united states senate intelligence committee on the attack here in boston that killed three people and wounded now 170 others. we'll speak with the vice-chairman of the committee in just a few minutes on this newscast. meantime we're learning more about the explosives used in the twin blasts. is a mentioned earlier sources are telling us they were made from pressure cookers, the kind you might have in your house. makeshift weapons that attackers often use in other countries and even in some failed attacks here in the united states. katherine heritage covers issues of this matter for us, intelligence and beyond and is live. what else do we know about the pressure cookers? >> well, shep, two sources are telling us that investigators believe the bombs used producer cookers withball bearings and nails. a style of ied associated with the taliban and the border areas of pakistan and afghanistan. as you mentioned one was also found in the failed times square bombing in 2010 and also associated with the group al qaeda in yemen, so basically no conclusions
sends poison to a united states senator is on some level a crazy person, so once you're crazy you've opened it up to any number of possibilities. >> the net widens once you've stipulated somebody is crazy could be crazy on any level for any reason. if it's a political statement or statement of any kind that's supposed to correspond with another statement with this loose n.r.a. tie, if you want to buy into that, but in any case, there's no specificity at all about this bombing. this is just an act of terrorism that appears random, nobody is taking credit for it. thus far, there are no clues. if it's intended to be a statement of some kind, the statement is. cenk: lost on us. >> exactly a blur. cenk: that's interesting because now everybody is speculating. again, i don't blame them, because everybody's curious about it. some i blame, glenn beck with his insane theory which of course it had to be the muslims because they kill in sents. he didn't say right wing, but when nationalists americans do it they target non-innocents? is that a defense of the right wing terrorism? where did yo
discussed in the united states senate. >> bill: there is too many guns on the street. >> no, no. this is about mental health. every one of those heinous crimes was carried out by someone who is severely mentally ill. >> bill: right. but they get access to the guns. >> what this administration is doing is the worst. >> bill: but answer my question here. >> sure. >> bill: if you require firearms registration. >> right? >> right. >> therefore, the criminal doesn't register. >> um-huh. >> because they wouldn't. right? >> okay. >> the criminal wouldn't. >> okay. >> and they grab them either state, local, no matter, what or federal. you slap a 10 year mandatory on them. >> um. >>um that would control bad guys from getting guns. >> let's take the example then. let's apply your here to adam lanza and sandy hook. he didn't have those guns registered. his mother did. >> bill: right. >> he walks in and kills. >> could not stop it. >> could not stop it. >> and there would be not one of us would feel any better. >> bill: you could stop it in chicago with that little 15-year-old girl getting
of a sudden getting something like in this sent to the united states senate, you have to start wondering, is this something being triggered here, something going on? it may turn out not to be so but it's would recollect investigating it from that point of view. >> we have all this break news tonight and i'm not sure how to interpret it. but good news i think in terms of the investigation. waga, our affiliate out of atlanta, has what they believe is the pressure cooker that they got the tape of, and there it is up on the screen. certainly that could be helpful to the police. >> right. tracing where it came from is of and trying to get back to who did it. the bad news is they let go of the guy that they thought was connected to this. now, i mean that means they spent the first day, which is a critical day in any terrorism or murder investigation, they spent the day apparently chasing a wrong lead. now maybe it isn't a wrong lead. maybe they don't have enough and they are letting him go ask want to see what the heckle do. it's hard to tell because we don't have the information they have ins
and other tragedies we've seen over a long period of time. i think the question for me or any united states senator is the following -- have i done enough, by my votes and by my actions to substantially reduce the likelihood that this tragedy or something like it will happen again. if you can answer that in good conscience, then you can sleep at night. i think that's a question a lot of us have to continue to ask ourselves. >> now the background checks were the only measure that most people thought had a chance of succeeding, of getting close to 60, not the assault weapon ban or the ban on the high-capacity magazines. what did you say to dianne feinstein, if anything after her measure? she persisted in the face of all opposition. and obviously it went down badly. that first vote on the assault weapon ban. >> well, diane, as i go out people have worked for years, have used a phrase in the bible, labored in the vineyard a long time. i just spoke to her a couple of minutes ago before coming here to do the interview and i commended her on the work that she did. and she is committed to keep goin
